The book https://archive.org/details/ProveMeNowByJ.EdwinOrr
is marked "public domain" by the uploader in 2008. But the book was first published in 1934 and the author has not been dead for 70 years, so on what grounds is it in the public domain? Is there a way to find out? Is there a way to contact the uploader?

The main reason for my question is that I have found a Swedish translation of this book where the translator has been dead for 70 years. If Orr's copyright is indeed gone, then the translation would also be in the public domain.
